2. Emily Dickinson
I was a born writer, I've been writing since I can remember, whether it was little stories and fan fictions of my favorite band (Hanson!) or if it was poems. Poetry has been a huge influence to me and it's made me who I am today. So of course, Emily had a huge influence on not just my writing style, but my entire life. She's an amazing poet, an incredible woman and she went through a lot!
